Abigail: I really hope you're not breaking my heart for nothing.
Austin: What do you mean?
Abigail: If you really want to fix your marriage... then you can't have any secrets. You have to tell Carrie everything... about you and about me and us and the affair.
Austin: The affair?
Austin: The affair? What are you talking about, Abigail? It was one night. I was drunk.
Abigail: So then that makes it right, Austin?
Austin: No. No, okay? It doesn't make it right.
Abigail: Exactly. So you agree with me. Good. Then we'll tell Carrie today.
Sami: Mom, tell me what you know about Will.
Marlena: I came here to talk about you.
Sami: Give me a break. You don't care about me or my family or my marriage. You tell me what you know about my son, or you get out.
Austin: So you want to tell Carrie that we slept together?
Abigail: Well, I don't see any other way around it, Austin. If you really want to save your marriage, then you have to be honest with her.
Austin: Abigail, if I want to save my marriage, Carrie can never know what happened, ever. This has got to stay between us.
Carrie: What has to stay between you?
Victor: Thank you.
Maggie: You're welcome.
Victor: What I said yesterday still has you upset. That whole situation with Titan and McAllister had me so upset that I just--
Brady: What are we doing about McAllister?
Maggie: Well, I see you're not alone.
Brady: I didn't mean to interrupt you.
Victor: I appreciate your concern, Brady, but... he's my problem, not yours.
Brady: Well, it's my fault you hired him.
Brady: No, it is, because when I quit titan and I went to work for my Dad, it left you scrambling for a CEO, and Madison turned you down, and then that guy slithered right into the position.
Victor: You are not to blame, Brady. I vetted him myself. His credentials as a CEO were outstanding. And I couldn't find any connection between him and Madison's company, let alone Madison.
Ian: But I have an indelible connection to Madison. Well, she is, after all, my wife.
Quinn: I am really looking forward to doing business with Mad World--expanding the business overseas and working with you, of course. Kate was always a bit...
Madison: Mean? Nasty? Impossible to deal with?
Quinn: Yeah. Pity those are her best qualities. [Clears throat] You look tense. Would you like a massage?
Kate: What's her product doing on my display?
Marlena: This is more than just about Will. This is about you and Rafe and the future of your family.
Sami: Well, for God sakes, tell me--
Will: Hi. Grandma, what's going on?
Marlena: Your mother and I are having a talk.
Will: Oh. I guess I should stay, then.
Marlena: I'd like to talk to your mother in private.
Will: I'm not gonna leave you alone with her.
Sami: Actually, I think you should leave.
Will: Oh, why? Are you afraid that I'm gonna tell Grandma about your poor decision making?
Sami: Stop it.
Will: Well, it's too late. She knows. I told her that you had sex with EJ.
Sami: Wow. You loved it, didn't you-- running straight to her to tell her about the worst mistake I ever made?
Marlena: Sami, that's not--
Will: I don't know what you're talking about.
Sami: God, what did I do to deserve this?
Will: I think I have a list somewhere.
Marlena: Stop it, both of you. Sami, you've got to understand this. Will didn't come to me because he was happy to share the news about you and EJ. He was overwrought. He was angry. He was carrying a terrible, terrible secret.
Sami: Well, I know how that feels.
Will: Yeah, and you still let it happen. And then you treated Rafe like scum for kissing Carrie.
Sami: You've got to be loving this. After all those years I gave you grief for cheating on daddy... and now it's your turn to rub it in my face. Are you happy now?
Abigail: Well, it looks like your secret's about to come out.
Carrie: You know something I don't?
Carrie: I didn't realize you two were so close.
Abigail: Actually, we're a lot closer than I ever expected when I first took the job.
Austin: Abigail knows so much about so many different things... which is why I asked for her advice on where we should go for our romantic getaway. I was trying to keep it a surprise.
Carrie: Well, I don't want to ruin the surprise. That was very sweet of you, Abigail, to help Austin.
Abigail: Yeah, there's nothing I wouldn't do for him. Isn't that right, Austin?
Carrie: That had to be difficult for you, planning a romantic getaway after what you just went through.
Abigail: Yeah, you mean the guy that used me and then bailed? Yeah.
Carrie: How you doing?
Abigail: Actually, I was just talking to him.
Ian: The lovely Mrs. Kiriakis... these are for you.
Maggie: Oh, shortbread from Scotland... thank you.
Ian: Well, delicious as they are, I'm sure they're no match for your legendary lemon squares.
Maggie: [Laughs] You're too kind. Please, um, call me Maggie.
Victor: You will not eat those. For all we know, they could be poisoned.
Ian: I'm not going to do grievous bodily harm.
Brady: You mashed your cane into my windpipe. What do you call that?
Ian: I'm not going to poison you, and I'm not going to slit your throat.
Victor: You would do either if you thought you could get away with it. Nothing would make you happier than to own Titan... with no one to keep an eye on you.
Brady: I think you'd love to own Titan, wouldn't you?
Ian: I haven't had the time to look at the Titan succession plan.
Victor: Don't bother. You're not on the list.
Ian: No worries. My only agenda is to run Titan successfully, as I've been contracted to do. Now, look, I understand I rub people the wrong way. I apologize for that. I'm here to mend fences. I want to make things right for the long haul. Well, after all, the woman that I love--she... lives in Salem now.
Kate: We have a deal, Quinn. You're selling Countess Wilhelmina, not Madison's products.
Madison: Well, Quinn's made a change, Kate-- out with the old, in with the new.
Kate: You know, you're lucky you're not the face of mad world. Otherwise, no one would be buying it. And why are you a traitor?
Madison: Go ahead, Quinn. Tell her. Tell Kate about our new arrangement. Just be gentle. You know how fragile she is.
Marlena: Seriously? Am I happy to see my daughter, my family in pain? No, I'm not. I know how that feels.
Sami: No, you don't! You do not know how I feel!
Marlena: Okay, fine, shout at me, Sami. Shout at Will. Shout at Rafe. But it will not alleviate the shame and the embarrassment you feel for what happened, because the person at whom you're angriest is yourself.
Sami: You don't know how I feel. And don't you dare compare what I did to your affair with John. I had sex with EJ because I was overcome with grief. I didn't know what I was doing. I thought--I thought I had lost my son.
Will: Oh, yeah... "the pain made me do it." Trust me, Grandma, if she was crying out, it wasn't from pain.
Marlena: Don't do this.
Sami: I don't know what I could say. I don't know that there is anything I can say that will make you not be mad at me.
Will: How about... "I'm not your real mother"? Just--seriously, tell me I'm adopted.
Marlena: Stop that right now.
Will: I'm sorry.
Sami: He listens to you and not to me.
Marlena: It's because I listen to him.
Sami: And I don't?
Will: No. You don't. You only hear what you want to hear. I gave up trying to get through to you a long time ago.
Marlena: Sami, you've got to know the pain that he's going through. You have to know that.
Sami: Because I'm such a bad mother? Really? Look who's talking. God.
Victor: So this is your idea of mending fences-- barging in here unannounced with some stale crackers as some sort of a peace offering? So much for the British and their good manners.
Maggie: [Scoffs] I like shortbread.
Brady: Your little charm offensive doesn't change the fact that you withheld vital information when you were hired, Ian.
Victor: If I knew then what I know now, I would have never hired you.
Ian: My marriage to Madison has no relevance to my position. That is like me refusing to give your Grandson Sonny a job because he's gay. You check with the legal team. They'll tell you the same.
Brady: Legalities aside, you knew that Madison's company was owned by Titan, and keeping your relationship with her a secret makes us wonder what else you're keeping a secret.
Ian: I can see why you'd think that way. But that's not the fact. In fact, if anyone was less than upfront, I'm sorry to say, but it was Madison.
Brady: Well, that's a great husband, huh? Throwing your wife under the bus like that.
Ian: I can understand why you'd be upset-- losing Madison only to discover you never really had her in the first place. I'm very sorry about that. I cannot help you with that.
Brady: We are wasting our time here.
Ian: I think that's for Victor to decide, as you no longer run Titan. I need your support, and I hope to have it, especially after you've seen this.
Victor: What is it?
Ian: It's my new business plan for Titan... proving that I am the best man for the job.
Quinn: Look, Kate, as part of our deal with Mad World, they've promised to take my spa to a whole new level. Soon, intensity will be an international chain, and I'll be jetting off to Europe in a few days with a suitcase full of Mad World products.
Madison: Mm. Poor Kate. You know, you could channel water through those lines in your forehead. You should take this--on me.
Kate: Keep it. You need it more than me.
Kate: We had an agreement.
Quinn: A vague understanding at most--nothing in writing. Besides, you never offered to take me international, Kate. Madison did. I'm sorry. Now, if you ladies will excuse me, I have a growing business to run.
Kate: You did this to get back at me.
Madison: Get back at you for what?
Victor: This is good... very good.
Ian: Well, that's why you chose me for the job. I can improve upon the last CEO's performance by at least 30%. Well, now that you see where I intend to take Titan, I hope you feel better about all of this, Victor.
Victor: Well, before we let bygones be bygones, why don't we find out if your plan has any substance... or if it just makes a good first impression?
Ian: Exactly the response I'd expect from a businessman like you, Victor. Maggie, thank you so much for that tea. The Queen of England could not brew a better cup, and I know.
Maggie: Mm, you're too kind.
Ian: Always at your service, Victor. No hard feelings, Brady. You cannot lose what you never had. Till the next time.
Marlena: I did not say you're a bad mother.
Will: I will.
Marlena: Oh, stop it right now. Stop this. We are a family. We love each other. And we, the three of us, have got to find a way to fix this before your sisters and your brother and your husband are all hurt by this.
Sami: I get it, okay? I am to blame for everything. I understand that. I don't need you saying it.
Marlena: It's not about you. Sami... Sami, I'm not your enemy. I'm your mother. Let me help you.
Sami: I didn't plan to have sex with him. I mean... I didn't mean for it to happen. I just... I was angry, and I was scared, and I was upset. I was... I was so upset. I thought that Johnny was dead, and... and I don't know. I mean, I swear on my life, I don't know how we ended up like that. I don't--I don't...
Marlena: I do. You were trying to avoid a terrible, terrible grief any way that you could.
Marlena: And afterwards?
Sami: I hated myself. I mean, the second I started thinking rationally, I hated myself for what I had done. I-I still do. I would never have put someone through the pain that I went through.
Marlena: I know that. I know you wouldn't.
Sami: I'm sorry. I know that's not enough. I know it will never be enough, but I am truly sorry. And if I could fix it, I would. I just don't know how.
Marlena: Sami, you're not alone. I'm here. And I promise you... this will be all right.
Carrie: I'm surprised you're still talking to this guy after the way he treated you.
Austin: Well, if we're gonna grab a bite, we better get going, 'cause, um--'cause I have a class to prep for too, so...
Carrie: Well, we still have time. Besides, I want to hear the rest of Abigail's story.
Abigail: Well, he, um... he has some issues with commitment. I think maybe that's why he broke things off with me, and I know he sounds like a real jerk after what he did to me, but the truth is, deep down, he's a really good guy. He was just telling me how important truth and honesty are to him, and I know that he really meant it. I mean, isn't that the most important thing in any relationship?
Carrie: Absolutely. Yeah.
Abigail: Austin was just saying he felt the same way.
Carrie: Of course he does.
Maggie: Have you had a chance to speak with Madison about Ian?
Brady: Maggie, she tried, all right? She tried to make me understand the situation with him, but...
Maggie: I'm sorry.
Victor: We both are. You were blindsided like the rest of us.
Brady: No, you--you were blindsided. I was made a fool out of myself. Granddad, I asked her to marry me. She was already married at the time. And I will never understand how that woman could have let this go so far when all along she was married to someone else.
Madison: Why would I want to get back at you?
Kate: Well, you're petty. You're spiteful.
Madison: No, that's you. Keep going.
Kate: I'm thinking maybe it could be payback for stealing Sami away from your company.
Madison: Huh, I'm underwriting an international franchise of day spas versus you stealing my assistant. Yeah, that works.
Kate: No. No, no, no. This behavior, I think it's something--I think it's something personal.
Madison: Hmm. Very interesting that you would go there. Since I came to Salem, it's been all business, and we've only run into each other maybe a couple of times at the most outside.
Kate: Really? Because I don't remember.
Madison: Well, it's not like we ran in the same circles. My friends are full of life, and yours are on life support. Ooh, squinting--more wrinkles.
Kate: Come on. What's up with you, Madison? What's this little game you're playing?
Madison: The one where I win.
Kate: Ian... I didn't expect you here.
Ian: I imagine not. I just came by to say... "hello, lovely wife."
Marlena: Go ahead. Let it out. You've been holding this in way too long.
Sami: [Sobbing] Mommy, I didn't know what to do.
Marlena: I know. We will figure this thing out... together.
Sami: How? How?
Marlena: I know you want to make it right... with Will, with Rafe, and with yourself.
Sami: I want that more than-- more than anything.
Marlena: Well, then, honey... you've got to tell Rafe about what happened with EJ.
Sami: I can't tell Rafe that I had sex with EJ.
Marlena: You have to.
Sami: Mom, he would divorce me, for sure.
Marlena: Sami, we don't know that.
Sami: Are you kidding me? Of course he would. We're not telling him anything. We are the only ones who know. And no one is telling Rafe.
Will: EJ knows, obviously.
Sami: Well, he's not gonna say anything. He doesn't want to lose Nicole.
Marlena: And what if it doesn't work out with Nicole? EJ is still a DiMera. And, Sami, if you keep a secret, he will use it against you. You had to deal with this before he does.
Sami: But Rafe...
Marlena: Rafe? Rafe thinks you're divorcing him because he kissed your sister. How long can you let him believe that?
Sami: You mean because what I did was so much worse?
Will: Yeah. Yeah, it was, Mom. Look, I didn't want to tell Rafe, because I didn't want to break up the family. But you did that already when you kicked him out. So can you do something?
Marlena: Sami, you want to save this marriage, don't you? Will and I want you to save this marriage, don't you?
Marlena: Rafe loves you so much. He will understand. He will forgive you.
Marlena: Really. But something else I know is true... if you try to keep a secret, it gets out. It just does. And the longer you wait, the worse it is. Go to him. Tell him. Tell him now. Tell him today.
Carrie: Well, I hope everything works out for you, Abigail.
Abigail: Thanks. Me too. And thank you for letting me talk to you about it. It really helps.
Carrie: Absolutely. Sorry we have to run, but if you want to continue talking at some point, let me know.
Abigail: Yeah, I'll definitely take you up on that.
Maggie: Brady, I'm not defending Madison.
Brady: Good. Please-- please don't do that.
Maggie: But I will say that sometimes, um... people have a good reason for doing what they do or don't do, even if we don't understand it.
Brady: Madison had her reasons. Hell, some of 'em even made sense to me, Maggie, but, um... the problem is I can't trust her anymore. And without trust, what do you got?
Victor: We understand.
Maggie: Did Madison say why she let you fall in love with her when she was still married to Ian?
Maggie: Did you believe her?
Brady: Even if I wanted to, Maggie, it's too late. It doesn't matter.
Maggie: In a way, it's a shame.
Victor: How can you say that?
Maggie: Because I see the way Madison looks at Brady. Ian is not the man in her heart. You are.
Kate: Madison is your wife.
Madison: You didn't know I was married to Ian?
Kate: No, actually, I didn't.
Ian: The question never came up.
Quinn: Oh, boy, I smell blood.
Kate: Wow. Now it's all starting to make sense.
Madison: You want to write it down so you don't forget?
Kate: You know, I always wondered why you singled me out to compete with. It just... I don't know--it seemed so personal. But it's because you knew about my relationship with Ian.
Madison: What you had with Ian would be considered an affair, since we were married at the time.
Kate: Ian and I were in love. And I didn't know he was married to you, Madison. But his heart belonged to me. I guess you couldn't handle that.
Madison: You don't know me. You don't know who I am or what I'm about, and you never will.
Kate: But I know Ian. And I know that he needs someone who's his equal... a challenge. And obviously I would have been more suited to that.
Madison: Well, I don't know. Ian and I are still married, and you settled for Stefano.
Kate: Oh, no. I never settle. I love my husband.
Madison: And I love that mad world is way ahead of Countess W--way ahead. So not only have I risen to whatever challenge you put in front of me, I beat you at every turn. So what did Stefano say when you told him one of your ex-lovers was in town? Hmm? I mean, you did tell him, didn't you? You don't have anything to hide, do you?
Kate: You keep your husband a secret from the man who asked you to marry him, and you're trying to make me out as disloyal? Madison, you're done... done. Men like me. They always have. They always will. You couldn't satisfy Ian or Brady. Figure that one out.
Victor: Henderson can do that.
Maggie: I miss cleaning up after myself, believe it or not.
Victor: Just wait a minute. Is this your way of avoiding having a conversation with me?
Maggie: You didn't want to talk about it last night.
Victor: Well, now I do. I mean, clearly I hurt your feelings.
Maggie: Well, to hear you say that the situation with Ian never would have happened if you weren't married to me...
Victor: I didn't say that.
Maggie: Yeah, but you were going to. So, yes, you did hurt my feelings.
Victor: It's the simple truth. It wouldn't have happened.
Maggie: So you are blaming me.
Quinn: Abigail, I heard the good news. Congratulations.
Abigail: What? What are you talking about?
Quinn: Melanie. I am so glad the two of you are friends again.
Abigail: Oh, yeah, me too. Me too. I'm really psyched to model with her for Mad World. It's gonna be great.
Quinn: But... I'm thinking I'm detecting some guy troubles here.
Abigail: How did you know? I love him so much. But...
Quinn: But what? It's okay. You can tell me.
Abigail: Quinn, you're so sweet to care.
Sami: No. No, I don't think that he would ever forgive me for sleeping with EJ.
Will: So you--you want to keep lying and keep making Rafe feel horrible.
Sami: He has a thing for Carrie. She has a thing for him. If I tell him about this, it's just the excuse he needs to go be with her.
Marlena: Don't make this a competition between you and your sister. There isn't one.
Marlena: He loves you, Sami. When he came here to see the children, he was pleading with you to let him come home.
Will: Look, I can call Rafe right now.
Sami: I don't think we should do that. Here's what we should do. I am going to talk to Rafe about the Carrie thing, okay? Okay, I will have him come home. I will talk to him. We will get that sorted out. And then I don't have to tell him about EJ. You have to both promise me that you won't say anything.
Maggie: Well, I hope that big leather sofa in your office is comfortable, 'cause that's where you're sleeping tonight.
Victor: Will you let me finish?
Maggie: What? You're listing me as a liability on some tax write-off?
Victor: You are anything but a liability to me. You are the best thing that ever happened to me. Now I'm happy... truly happy.
Maggie: But hiring Ian, you said...
Victor: Maggie, my life is full now. And that's because of you. If sometimes things don't get the attention that they deserve, then so be it.
Victor: If hiring Ian turns out to be a disaster... it's just business. You're my life, the love of my life. If I could marry you a thousand times... I would.
Maggie: And I'd let you.
Carrie: Just knowing that--
Austin: What did you say? I'm not telling you anything.
Carrie: Please. Come on. I'm so excited.
Abigail: What's this I hear about you leaving town?
Quinn: Well, yeah, that's thanks to our new contract with Mad World. Intensity's going multinational.
Abigail: Quinn, that's fantastic.
Quinn: Yeah. My first stop will be Paris, where I'm hoping to convince my one true love...
Quinn: Taylor... to take the rest of this journey with me.
Abigail: Wow. That's so romantic.
Carrie: You're so lucky you had Abigail.
Austin: Excuse me?
Carrie: To help plan for our trip. At least now I know we're going someplace warm.
Austin: [Laughs] Yeah. You know what? Speaking of our getaway, I've got so much to do before we go. It's...
Carrie: Me too, actually.
Austin: You do?
Austin: Well, I mean, take care of what you have to take care of, and I'll see you back at the hotel.
Carrie: Sounds good.
Both: I love you.
Austin: I'm so excited.
Carrie: Me too.
Abigail: Well, I'm so glad that we bumped into each other, and I'm wishing you and Taylor the very best of luck.
Quinn: Right back at you. All right, thanks, sweetheart. See you soon.
Austin: What was that all about?
Madison: You can leave now, Kate. There's nothing left for you here--nothing.
Kate: You are so right about that. Tell Quinn I think he's a fool for doing business with you.
Madison: Sure, tell Stefano Ian says hi.
Kate: You know, if I were you, I would stop letting my need for revenge fuel my business deals.
Madison: Would you, now?
Kate: One final warning-- if you continue to make this personal... there will be war. You will lose.
Marlena: I know you don't want to hurt Rafe. But I've told you, secrets have a terrible way of coming out.
Sami: Not this one. I won't tell him. You don't tell him. He'll never have to know.
Marlena: But... I know, you know, EJ knows. Honey, it's a time bomb. The only way to defuse it is to tell Rafe.
Sami: Haven't you thought about how it's gonna make Rafe feel when he finds out that I had sex with EJ?
Marlena: And don't you know yet that you can't have lies in a marriage and expect it to survive?
Sami: I'm just trying to protect Rafe.
Will: No, you're not, Mom. You're trying to protect yourself, just like you always do.
Sami: Well, I learned the hard way that I have to look out for myself because certainly no one else will.
Maggie: Well, I guess I'm just gonna have to find other ways to be less of a distraction to you.
Victor: Don't you dare.
Maggie: [Chuckles] I hope things work out with you and Ian, for your sake.
Victor: Time will tell.
Maggie: I know I don't know as much as you, but... Ian's business plan for Titan, it does seem amazing.
Victor: Yes. It does seem that way.
Ian: How did you know I'd seen Kate already?
Madison: Maybe you were too good a teacher. Maybe I was a better student than you ever gave me credit for.
Austin: You're flirting? You're flirting with Quinn?
Abigail: Are you jealous?
Austin: I'm concerned. I know that I hurt you, Abby, but I don't want to see you get hurt by somebody like that. You have to know that Quinn is bad news.
Abigail: Why do you care what I do or who I do it with? I mean, you are back with Carrie, right?
Austin: Yes. Yes, I am.
Abigail: Fine. Then I can date whoever I want. And I plan on it.
Sami: That's right. Yes, I have had to look after myself my entire life because you were too busy being happy with John.
Marlena: I know I wasn't there for you as often as I should have been. I'm so sorry about that. But I can't change the history.
Sami: And I can't change who I am. I can't change that I'm selfish. But I do think that's what comes from having a mother who thinks only of herself.
Will: That's so funny. I know exactly how that feels.
